DIBRUGARH, Oct 27 - The PWD Minister Parimal Suklabaidya today said that the dilapidated National Highway roads in Upper Assam would soon get a facelift, informing that additional funds were made available for its restoration.
In response to a volley of questions from a posse of media persons here today, the PWD Minister said that hostile weather conditions did not allow restoration works to be conducted in full swing. �Now that weather has improved restoration works of all arterial roads will be undertaken. We are hoping to begin repair works by mid November and complete it by February,� he said.
On the delay in the construction of the four-lane highway roads, the Minister said that the previous government had not completed the acquisition process and this was a big impediment in accelerating the works. Besides, our government got only one working season to administer this construction works. Four-laning works may take some more time but we want that the existing roads are repaired immediately, said the Minister.
